LF DEAL ALERT: Acapulco Luxury, with Banyan Tree
Mexico’s first jet-set resort destination, Acapulco, is getting a needed shot in the arm with a spate of new luxury hotel openings. During my last visit, I checked out the pre-opening model of the Banyan Tree Cabo Marques, the newest property in the Americas run by the Asian luxury hotelier. And it’s quite a luxurious getaway.
Tucked into the secluded hills overlooking the Bay of Marques, this tranquil property is removed from the city and nearly everything else, with posh guest villas graced with floor-to-ceiling windows and private plunge pools. The villas themselves are so well placed among the trees and hills that you won’t even have to see most of your neighbors.
To celebrate the resort’s grand opening on March 15, Banyan Tree is offering a free night and daily breakfast to anyone who pays for two nights, and a complimentary 90-minute spa treatment if you pay for three nights. To get this deal, you need to book by June 28, 2010, and stay between March 15 and June 20, 2010.
